Dell Technologies (NYSE: DELL) Introduces New Telecommunications Software, Solutions, and Services to Help Communication Service Providers (CSPs) Accelerate Their Open, Cloud-Native Network Deployments and Create New Revenue Opportunities at the Edge .
To support the massive data growth expected of 5G applications and services, CSPs are moving compute infrastructure to the edge and seeking to integrate a large ecosystem of software vendors to seize new revenue opportunities. New technologies like Open RAN (ORAN) give CSPs a wider set of options for deploying network infrastructure to support future growth. However, this trend is leading to a large, geographically distributed open compute deployment that can be difficult to deploy and manage.
“As server technology proliferates across increasingly open telecommunications networks, the industry is seeing an immediate and growing need for remote management of the lifecycle of a highly distributed computing fabric,” said Dennis hoffmann, senior vice president and general manager, Dell Technologies Telecom Systems Business. “Bare Metal Orchestrator provides communications service providers with an easier way to deploy and manage an open network infrastructure while saving costs and time, allowing them to focus on delivering new and differentiated services to their customers. . “
New Dell Technologies software modernizes network deployment and management
Dell Technologies Bare Metal Orchestrator Telecommunications software provides the breadth and scale needed to automate the deployment and management of hundreds of thousands of servers in geographic locations to support ORAN and 5G deployments. The company’s first software from its Metalweaver Project Initiative, Bare Metal Orchestrator gives CSPs the tools to discover and inventory servers, bring them online, and deploy software, regardless of their location on the network. With declarative automation, Bare Metal Orchestrator tells the targeted server what to do, so that tasks and workflows, such as deploying software stacks and workloads, can be performed quickly and efficiently without human intervention. The software combines open standards technology with intellectual property from Dell Technologies.
With Bare Metal Orchestrator, CSPs can eliminate days or weeks of configuration and provisioning to bring network hardware into a workload-ready state. This reduces the time it takes for an open network to deliver differentiated and profitable services at scale. Over time, software can reduce operating costs by orchestrating server lifecycle management and minimizing errors and the need for IT expertise. ACG Research estimates up to 57% operating savings for CSPs deploying Bare Metal Orchestrator in their networks.1
“As we prepare for the future of mobility and the 5G edge, at T-Mobile we have worked closely with Dell Technologies to develop a product that enables engineers to dramatically reduce the time spent managing thousands of servers on hundreds of sites, ”said Quaid Campbell, Director, Network Engineering Cloud Services, T-Mobile. “Solutions like Bare Metal Orchestrator allow us to focus on building new mission-critical services, automating provisioning and management tasks from servers to software systems rather than engineers.
“The industry is moving towards open RANs, but network operators face the challenge of operating them profitably on a large scale,” said Caroline chappell, Research Director, Analysys Mason. “To keep pace with innovation, telecommunications operators need more agile ways to deploy and manage their network infrastructure. Bare metal orchestrators, such as software from Dell Technologies, will be critical to the flexible and efficient automation of heterogeneous bare metal environments, operators tell us they must underpin cloud-native open RAN functions. “
New telecommunications solutions simplify network deployments and deliver better experiences
Dell Technologies continues to expand its open partner ecosystem by introducing new telecommunications solutions, new reference architectures and new services to accelerate ORAN and Edge deployments while providing CSPs with more network support:
Dell Technologies Validated Solution for Mavenir Open vRAN and VMware Telco Cloud Platform brings together many industry-leading RAN partners into a validated hardware and software solution, helping CSPs accelerate their transformation to ORAN technologies with pre-tested multi-vendor solutions.
Dell Technologies Reference Architecture for Wind River Studio can streamline and reduce the cost of deploying a cloud-native edge network while improving network performance.
Dell Technologies responds and restores for telecommunications The service provides support service level agreements to customers to help maximize network availability, limit network disruption and maintain business continuity. Businesses have 24-hour access to designated Dell Technologies experts for full support of the Dell Technologies infrastructure running their network, as well as a full set of proactive, predictive and reactive capabilities.
Dell Technologies is in a unique position to help transform CSPs. The company relies on an advanced IT infrastructure; secure global supply chain; and, IT services with more than 60,000 professionals and dedicated partners in more than 170 countries. With Dell Financial Services, CSPs can choose flexible payment solutions for the products and services they need to transform or grow their networks.2
“Open RAN is now moving from the trial phase to full commercial deployment as a cloud native solution and is supported in the reference architecture from Dell Technologies,” said John baker, Senior Vice-President, Business Development, Mavenir. “Open RAN provides ease of deployment, the ability to orchestrate rapid architecture changes and deploy zero-touch provisioning, simplifying provisioning and optimizing performance. “
“Communication service providers have before them a tremendous opportunity to modernize their networks – from core to edge to RAN – and monetize 5G services. The construction of an infrastructure capable of taking in the ecosystem. VMware and Dell Technologies plan to continue their partnership in this area to help our mutual customers win in the new edge reality, ”said Stephen Spellicy, vice president of product marketing and business development, service provider and edge, VMware.
“As we move towards a world of intelligent systems, the next generation of 5G services will require carrier-class native cloud infrastructure to support innovative edge applications,” said Paul Miller, CTO, Wind River. “Wind River Studio enables communications service providers to meet their critical system needs with a modernized approach. By working closely with Dell Technologies, we deliver validated reference architectures for 5G vRAN, Open RAN and others. use cases to help service providers quickly and reliably deploy new services with the industry’s best total cost of ownership. “
Dell Technologies Bare Metal Orchestrator will be available worldwide in November 2021.
Dell Technologies validated solution for Mavenir Open vRAN and VMware Telco Cloud Platform will be available globally in early 2022.
The Dell Technologies Reference Architecture for Wind River Studio is available worldwide today.
Dell Technologies Respond and Restore for Telecom is available worldwide today.
